We offer Wisdom and Inspiration for Today! Join us for small group discussions of life lessons from Torah wisdom. We offer food for thought about how to deal with real life issues and dilemmas. Our discussions take place in casual settings that are convenient for our students.
We host monthly Shabbatons that include a full Shabbat experience, home-cooked meals and engaging conversations.
Shabbat is a day of rest, an island of time to really sit back and treasure the world around us.
Cyber connections become real people, text messages fade away into genuine conversation, and the beauty of the Shabbat experience is here for us to enjoy!
Check out our calendar to find the next Shabbaton.

For a Jew of any background, studying with Rabbi Meister is extremely worthwhile. His sessions, often informally held in places like a coffee shop, are intellectually eye opening and commonly lead to fascinating inquiries about who we are and how we got here.Matt T. - Young Professional
I like the quality of the content. Having a setting where it’s easy to ask questions and be involved is great. I love coming to learn interesting things each week!Naomi C S. - MSOE
I went to Israel twice; first on birthright then on Israel 2.0, Israel 2.0 was really fun and Rabbi Burg was awesome and visiting all the places like Tzaft and the Kotel on Shabbat was very spiritual and cool. It was very moving listening to the teachings of yeshiva and the oral law put us in the right direction. It solidified my understanding of what it means to be Jewish.Sam F. - UWM
